Description:

This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiological Society’s 1997 Frontiers in Physiology Program. This activity engages students in exploring physiological changes in the body when exposed to differing external temperatures. This activity is the first of two activities and is the “engage” for a follow-up investigation on respiration rate as a function of environmental temperature. These activities are best for a high school biology course but may be adapted for a middle school life science class.
